Our Engagement Activity

We believe that partnership and engagement, over exclusion, remain central to good stewardship, as it allows us to consider a fuller investment universe. Engagements are based on meaningful dialogue to improve disclosure or change behavior related to material ESG risk and opportunity. In 2022, we initiated or updated 760 engagements with 477 entities. Over 540 of these engagements were new. Engagements below were recorded by our public equities and public fixed income platform.
